Intern Architect Liaison to Council: Sara Kasaei
June 10, 2015
The AIBC is pleased to welcome Sara Kasaei Intern Architect AIBC as this year’s Intern Architect Liaison to council. The position has a one year term.
The AIBC Council extends an invitation to an Intern Architect AIBC, who is elected by their peers, as a guest to sit in a non-voting capacity. This year’s sole candidate withdrew their nomination so a recommendation from staff was put forward to council in late May and Sara Kasaei was invited to fill the vacancy.
Sara registered with the Intern Architect Program in January 2014. She holds a Master of Architecture (M.Arch) from Azad University of Mashhad, Iran and a Master of Landscape Architecture (MLA) from the University of British Columbia.
She currently works at Stantec Architecture as an Intern Architect. Prior to joining Stantec, she worked in several local architecture and landscape architecture offices.
Sara, who is inspired by creative collaboration, community and education, supports an integrative multidisciplinary approach in design in addition to merging architecture and landscape architecture. As a LEED AP with a keen interest in sustainable design, she believes buildings should be built in harmony with the surrounding environment and within a local context.
Since 2011, she has mentored students at the UBC School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture. She has also collaborated with the British Columbia SITELINES magazine and presented at the Women in Architecture society.
The complete list of AIBC council members, including contact details, is available on the AIBC website.
